Holy Week/Stations of the Cross
This Sunday is Palm Sunday and marks the beginning of Holy Week. On Palm Sunday we celebrate Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem. On Thursday April 1, our Grade 8 students’ presentation of the Stations of the Cross will be shared virtually with our school and community. An emailed YouTube link will be shared next week. Families are reminded that the school is closed on Good Friday April 2 and on Easter Monday April 5th.
Families are reminded that tomorrow Saturday, March 27th is Earth Hour and that we collectively work together to reduce our own personal energy consumption. We wish all our St. Nicholas families a wonderful Earth Hour tomorrow evening!

Class Placements 2021-2022 – Preparations will begin soon to ensure that our school is organized for the 2021-2022 school year. When building a class, many factors are considered in the decisions to develop heterogeneous groupings such as: balanced abilities, gender, learning styles and social blending. Parental input is very important in this process, however, requests for specific teachers cannot be considered. If you have any information regarding your child’s placement, please submit it in writing by May 7, 2021 to Mr. Cacciola. Your trust in our professional judgement is appreciated.
